The Great Bend Public Library is holding a Halloween Costume Drive sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. From now until Nov. 9, old costumes may be dropped off at the library during business hours, to help kids get costumes for Halloween.
“It’s important for a community to give back when it can,” said Amanda Moran-Jones, assistant children’s librarian. “There are many kids that will not be able to afford a Halloween costume this year, so anything that the community can do to show support is fantastic.”
Children who need costumes can pick them out on Oct. 19.
Parents can bring children to the library from 3-5 p.m. on Oct. 19 for cookies, coloring and a costume. Costumes collected after this year’s Halloween will be stored for next year’s costume drive.
